The Living Room- an online cancer support community
The Living Room is a free online community for men, women and children 13 and older living with cancer, as well as their families and friends. Created and managed by Gilda’s Club Worldwide, The Living Room is an extension of Gilda’s Club’s global network of individual clubhouses located throughout North America.

This was a fairly complicated project from a technical perspective, as it's a hybrid social network / content management system. The CMS is used to manage most of the visible text content, while the social network components allow the user-generated content. Security and Privacy issues were also very important, as people need to be able to share information without fearing that it will get back to their friends or employers.
